I injected 1CC of GP Test Enanth 250into my thigh for body building. I've never done it before and I only went about a 1/4 inch in. It's been about 40 hours since I did it and I have soreness in my thigh. It's about 4 inches in circumference of tenderness and a little bit of swelling and about a 1 inch circumference of redness where I actually did the injection. Will this go away and if so how long will it take?

Thanks for posting the query.

After going through your query, I would like to comment the following:

1. Self injections of anabolic steroids without physician prescription is not recommended and is a XXXXXXX practice.

2. The cause of the soreness and pain after the Intra muscular injection is probably related to the concentration of steroid administered by you or the way in which it was administered. Normally such injectionas are painful.

3. This soreness should subside by 4 to 5 days. You may take an anti inflammatory, analgesic medication like Ibuprofen if the soreness is more. Local warm compresses may help sooth the pain.

4. If after 4-5 days the soreness does not relieve, you need to visit your physician and get it evaluated, as there is a chance of injection abscess if proper aseptic precautions are not taken during injection administration.

I hope I have answered your query. I will be glad to answer any follow up queries.

Please accept my answer if you have no follow up queries.
